Cooler Heads Prevail In Yukon Dogs Dispute Between Neighbors
YUKON, Oklahoma - News 9 reported good news about a pair of family dogs that were condemned to die last month by a Yukon municipal judge.
Dan Meier owns 'Seiger,' a rottweiler and 'Tito,' a pit bull.
Back in October, Meier's neighbor Travis Beams told Yukon Animal Control that Dan's dogs got through an opening in a picket fence that separates the men's backyards. Beams claimed Dan's dogs attacked and scratched his dog, although he failed to provide a veterinary bill to prove it.
On Dec. 9 a Yukon municipal judge ordered Seiger and Tito be put to death. Meier's attorney Holly Hefton, herself a former municipal judge, appealed to Canadian County Circuit Court.
A hearing was scheduled for Jan. 29. But cooler heads have prevailed. Travis Beams agreed to drop his complaint with the City of Yukon. Dan Meier agreed to reinforce that picket fence.
Meier got his dogs back Monday night. They'd spent the past 41 nights in a Canadian County facility at a cost to Meier of $34 a day. But Meier said there are no hard feelings. “There's really no good would come with being angry about it. But the win is getting them back, which is what we were going for from the beginning.”
Travis Beams Tuesday night told News 9 he had no official comment, other than it's just good for everyone to get this behind them.
